Scottie Upshall Returns, Almost Kills Oskars Bartulis

Kyle Scott - February 23, 2011

This decapitation brough to you by Wells Fargo

The cheers for Scottie Upshall didn't last long. He returned to Philly last night after Tweeting about it for, like, days. He then proceeded to almost break Oskars Bartulis' neck. Boos now.

Watched the highlights of our game. My hit on Bartulis was without a doubt late, but I had absolutely no intention of injuring him.


That video, after the jump. Stevie Why has the full recap here.

The Sons of Ben were at the game last night, cheering and generally annoying those around them. These two old guys and the Asian father and son combo look thrilled to be seated in section 217A…


I don't like soccer, but our own Ryan Gillon talked with the SOBs and said they are cool dudes.

Oh yeah, Jody Shelley required 60 stiches after this.

Hop it.

    Upshall owned up to the hit. Class move. PS, the Sons of Ben deserve standing ovations every Philly sporting event they go to. Those “annoyed” by them can GTFO.

    Exactly! I mean its not like the SOB represent ANY form of attitude that we REAL Philadelphia fans take pride it…no way. How uptight are you people

    Don’t think Upshall should have been suspended. (Thanks Matt Cooke and the rest of those arsehole goonies in Western, PA. Stay classy, Mario Lepew.) But he should have gotten more than a minor penalty. Oh well, the way the Flyers have been taking advantage of the PP lately, it wouldn’t have mattered. I think they should only go 4 in on a PP and have a D keep Bob-Boosh-ka* company way back in the D zone. They seems to own the ice with 4 guys attacking whether it’s on the PK, or 4-on-4.
    *: You can thank me later in the PS for coining that right here and now.

    You know, I didn’t realize it at the time, but over at that damn blog about hockey on Yahoo Sports, (written by a guy who has a sick fascination with the stupid Devils), they’re saying the hit happened after the 2nd whistle. So if that’s the case, then I take it back. The suspension is appropriate. But he still should have gotten something other than a @#$%!-ing minor penalty.
